4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise 25 Dec 2013
By Mazza
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't read any of this author's books before, but this was a pleasant surprise. This book is all about quite a normal human being abducted by aliens (and yes, he does get a tour of their ship!). The aliens are fairly normal too - they curse, swear and argue just like human beings! It is well written, obviously edited, and kept me interested throughout. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the current crop! 18 Nov 2013
By James P. Ruff, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book! It stands head and shoulders above many of the current crop of sci-fi stories available and has something sorely lacking in MOST of the sci-fi stories....a great deal of wit between several of the characters. Great personality development. I am a prolific reader as Amazon will attest. In 2013, I have read over 220 sci-fi books, so I think I have developed a good appreciation for the
good, bad and the ugly. This one is great, funny, articulate and I look forward to reading more by Mr. Adam Moon. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulp Science Fiction at its Finest 3 Jan 2014
By Book Concierge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"You're only worried about your race, but our worries are broader in scope." --the Captain

The story takes place in the present day, in a galaxy far, far away, to steal a familiar beginning to an old classic. The majority of this book takes place on the "Collector" ship and begins in the orbit around earth and continues in an adventure "locale" that spans across the universe until its conclusion.

The story's hero is Chris Mathers. He's "a regular bozo in a loveless relationship" on the third rock from the sun. Even his name somewhat suggests a kind of mundane existence on our planet, viz., "Jerry Mathers as 'the Beaver.'" He is a likable, frustrated character who is thrown into a fascinating "fish out of water" adventure.

There are several supporting characters that move the story along: the Captain, the alien in charge of the Collector Ship; the First Mate; Number Three; Number Four; and Sambda, the beautiful and gigantic alien life form that is hotter than an Arizona tin roof in July. The aliens have an interesting character makeup that reminds me much of the mythical gods of the Romans, Greeks or Vikings, possessing human faults and foibles.

The plot summary is a general Action Plot, if I might draw a comparison to the Jarvis Method of novel writing, and I would categorize its plot type as the "Locale Adventure" story (again alluding to the Jarvis Method). Although it does possess some subtle elements that could have conveyed a Myth Plot, the lack of character arch presents this story squarely into in the Action Category within this Science Fiction genre.

The first Inciting Incident takes place at approximately the 27% mark of the book, when a "Gray" alien escapes the Collector Ship. From that point, the story really takes off as a page turner. Initially, I thought the first 10% of the book was a little insipid, or even flat, but because it was a bit tedious, even lifeless, it actually laid an exceptional contrast to the action and adventure that prevailed after the first inciting incident.

This book may not be for everyone. Don't compare Adam Moon with Isaac Asimov. Need I say "apples and oranges"? If you are looking for a deeply character driven novel, like Herman Wouk's THE CAINE MUTINY, with a great character arch in Willie Keith, then this isn't the book for you.

If, however, you are looking for a great action-adventure in the Science Fiction genre; a story that has a kind of edginess that has come with the return of serial pulp fiction, then this is your book. If Ray Bradbury and Quentin Tarantino had a love child, their offspring might be Adam Moon's SEQUENCE. Again, this work is a plot-driven story, not character driven.

I read the book on my Amazon Cloud Reader and it was formatted well. Easy on the eyes and that made it that much more of a page turner.

If there was one thing I would change about the book, I would have included a table of contents, which was missing. There is Rated R language throughout the book so I would not call this a book for teens.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, read it in one sitting, and will read it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing! 25 Jan 2014
By ValiantM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a fun read, and I'm glad I took the chance on it. A few of the other reviews left me a bit skeptical, but I usually try to give books a chance and form my own opinions. While it doesn't have super complex sentence structure, difficult vocabulary words, and isn't terribly long, The story is unique, and quite well written in its own right.

Adam Moon did a fantastic job of building his worlds, and characters in a very truncated and to the point way, without harming the story line one bit. It is quite fast paced, and very easy to read, but that makes a nice relaxing fun book to me. I don't always want to think to hard or struggle through difficult sci-fi terminology.

The book starts off with our main character Chris, living his mundane boring life in an unhappy relationship. But very quickly it gets to the meat of the story, and he ends up on a ship on the other side of the galaxy. I don't want to give too much away, but even with all its brevity the story is detailed enough to really let you feel the characters and environment.

If you go into reading Sequence with the proper expectations you won't be disappointed and will have a fun read. I can absolutely recommend this book for any adult that likes sci-fi, I would even say teens too, but if you worry about subject matter for the younger ones you may just want to give it a quick read first. There is nothing overly graphic or sexual in nature, but it defiantly wasn't written for children.

I don't know if this is going to be a series, but I see that Adam has several other books out, and I will defiantly be checking them out as well, while waiting for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars have some fun for a change. 15 Jan 2014
By Deev49 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
some have described this book as childish and full of puerile humor. I personally, had a blast riding along through space with a collection of colorful characters. sample this book, and take a refreshing break from the authors who are so deeply rooted in science that you have to read a single sentence four or five times in order to comprehend the intent. I liken this story to seeing the movie, "Paul" vs. trying to ascertain the philosophical messages contained deep within, "2001 Space Odyssey". I truly enjoy hard science and the feeling of awe and wonder I experience when I become immersed in a creative and imaginative work. I am not saying Mr. Moon's work is lacking in creativity. quite contrary. he has a wonderful talent for mixing humor and the sublime. in the end, I left feeling like I just had some 'plain-ol'-fun'. to the staunch i say, "climb down off your high horse, let your hair down and a smile won't break your face".
